“The hull has been made as big in every dimension as is consistent with sparkling performance and excellent through-the-water speed. Her long waterline, generous beam and moderately high freeboard, are beneficial to voluminous live-aboard accommodations. The stability of this boat is absolutely awesome. A narrow entrance with sweetly vee-ed sections combine with a tall, generous sail plan and beautifully flair hull line, to make this design a powered windward sailor.
Seasoned cruisers and experienced live-aboards will recognize that there are no compromises in the Intrepid 40’s hull design, which make her any less then a powerful, steady, rugged sailing vessel with the potential for very fast passages to windward or off the wind. Her bright spacious and well-ventilated interior will appeal equally well, to those who wish to live aboard and cruise the world’s oceans. Both the ship’s engineer and homemaker will appreciate the many thoughtful details which make their individual tasks more pleasant.” C.W. Paine, N.A.
My wife and I started our full time sailing adventure leaving New Jersey on S/V Forewinds after selling our house and disposing of all our "stuff". We sailed the Bahamas for four years acquiring and fine tuning our cruising skills before venturing down the “Thorny Path" under the guidance of Bruce Van Sant's "Gentleman's Guide to Passages South".
We visited most all the Leeward and Windward Islands, ending up in Trinidad. There we had major wood work done and a hard dodger installed on Forewinds while enjoying Carnival. Sailing West we slowly visited Venezuela and its offshore islands, the ABC's, and then spent a holiday season in Cartagena. From there to the Sanblas Islands, Panama, and Honduras before returning to the US via Guatemala, Belize and Mexico, taking 5 years to make the circuit.
After this first trip, we visited the Caribbean three more times again following the Thorny Path going to islands we enjoyed the first time and spending more time seeing things we had missed before. For the last three years, we have been sailing the southern Bahamas in the winter and returning to Florida. At our stage AND 28 YEARS OF LOVING AND CARING FOR THIS BEAUTIFUL YACHT, it is time to transition to a Trawler and continue cruising, but we will both miss the sailing.
The Intrepid 40’ successfully blends the live-aboard spaciousness of a tri-cabin, center-cockpit layout with the speed and performance of a modern hull design. “Fore Winds” is a serious ocean cruiser, designed to be quick and responsive. Her underbody features external lead ballast, a long finkeel and skeg mounted rudder. The low profile deck is graceful and sleek. Teak trim, grab rails and coamings accent her beauty. The cockpit is big, with generous space for socializing and her uncluttered topsides and solid bulwarks surrounding the deck, are immediately appreciated by anyone who has ever had to go forward in a heavy sea or high wind.
Light and ventilation for the cabins are provided by twelve bronze opening ports and seven hatches. An electric anchor windlass, bowsprit for 2 anchors, double bow and stern pulpits, lifelines and gates complete the well-conceived deck layout. All bronze fittings and hardware are custom designed for the Intrepid 40.
Every Intrepid 40 is built to take the worst that wind and water can deliver. The hand laid up fiberglass is extra strong.Her hull has ½” Airex foam core for added strength plus thermal insulation and noise dampening. Hull and deck are bolted together and secured with locknuts. Thru-hulls and seacocks are all bronze, thru bolted and equipped with shut-of handles and double hose clamps. The list of extra-effort engineering goes on and on. The quality of every boat is carefully controlled and monitored at every phase of construction. The commitment to excellence is apparent throughout.
It is uncommon when one can find a center cockpit yacht of 40 feet that is also a true bluewater passagemaker and yet provides for dockside comfort and life aboard. Typically found in today’s yacts, are lots of space, volume and sleeping berths. You can even find some 40 footers with three double cabins and two heads, but what they most often lack, is suitable storage and an interior that provides for safe passages underway. Most often with modern production yachts, cost controls will win out over structural matters and proper accommodations. Chuck Payne’s design of the Intrepid 40 on the other hand, is that, by any standard, a serious bluewater passagemaker that also provides for a comfortable life aboard when not underway.
Built in Maine using traditional time proven standards and workmanship as a semi custom yacht, the Intrepid 40 is what one expects a proper yacht should be. Headroom is 6’4” or better except in the fore and fat passageway to the owners cabin. Storage capacity can only be noted as “incredible”. The beautiful teak joinery throughout represents a classic New England style, with white bulkheads and varnished teak trim. The cabin sole is teak and holly. The interior is finished with a satin varnish with high gloss accents on the trim. All lockers and doors have proper and attractive vents incorporated for circulation of air, something that any live-aboard cruiser will appreciate. Also, there are a total of 12 opening ports and 5 overhead hatches. So regardless of the exterior environment, the interior of this yacht maximizes comfort.
“FORE WINDS” sleeps up to 7 people in accommodations with the forward cabin, main salon and owners large and private aft cabin.
Like the rest of the interior, the forward cabin design provides for a Vee double, and with uncommon and extensive use of furniture quality cabinets and lockers. There are 6 separate drop door lockers above and under deck, and a low boy and two other cabinet lockers aft of the Vee berth. Moving ft to port is the en suite head and shower outboard and below with a plenty of lockers. In the passageway aft and across from the head, you will find generous well ventilated hanging locker and low boy cabinet to starboard.
In the main salon the use of traditional teak trimmed, white New England style bulkheads, makes for a bright and cheerful living space. The varnished teak drop leaf table can seat 6 adults. It provides for both functional use having inside storage and adds to the safe movement inside the main cabin while underway. The main salon features very traditionally functional fore and aft settee berths and can be used for secure sea berths while underway in difficult conditions. The port settee converts to a double. Above and outboard of the settees are beautiful vented lockers with a book shelf between. On the starboard side is the flat screen TV.
At the bottom of the cockpit companionway and to port is located the kind of U shaped galley one expects with an offshore passage maker. This location makes it possible for food and refreshments to be safely passed up to the cockpit in almost any sea condition. The gimbaled stove is fitted with a safety strap and a counter cover that stores bind when not in use. Twin stainless steel sinks have lots of storage below and there are 4 drawers for utensils and misc. items like spices. Outboard and above the stove are generous storage provisions for dishware and even a microwave oven. The top loading refer/freezer provides enough space for extended cruising. Large top loading dry storage lockers are outboard of the sink and refer. An important feature is the overhead hatch and opening ports for excellent ventilation while preparing a meal underway or at anchor.
Across from the galley and to starboard is a forward facing nav station with room under deck for the necessary ships electronic an navigational needs. The nav table has plenty of storage under the lid and within two drawers below. The companionway aft is accessed behind the nav seat bulkhead, and the location of a fuel tank that has a work bench on top. There is also storage above and outboard to starboard. As one would expect with a center cockpit layout, the large engine room and equipment space under the cockpit deck is accessed from double doors in the passageway aft to the owners cabin.
Moving aft to the owners cabin, is another great feature of center cockpit yachts and any owner will not be disappointed with the clever use of space to maximize storage, comfort and privacy. Extensive and commodious lockers surround the cabin on very outside wall. A special feature is the private, separate companionway to the cockpit. Not only does this enhance ventilation, it provides for a safe and private access to the aft section and owners cabin. The owners cabin also has a separate en suite head and shower with even more storage.
If you are looking for a properly designed, safe bluewater passage making, center cockpit yacht, then, “Forewinds” is an affordable yacht that will be worth your further consideration. Yachts of this size and class are few and far between.
